Our holiday and my special PIF!

We had a great time during our holiday last week. Nice and sometimes warm wether and I had time to stitch also.

This was our cottage for the week:

We did a lot of "exercise" in this week: soccer, jumping on the airtrampoline, badminton and swimming. We went to the zoo and to the Efteling. Here are a couple of pictures:

Emma and Dorine walking around in the little forrest around there:

Jumping on the airtrampoline:

Our daily swimming, we are glad that both of them had at least one swimmingcertificate:

Playing soccer with daddy ofcourse:

My stitching progresses; I thought I had some more stitching done, but the light was terrible, so it didn't go very fast.

Baubles April from SamSarah:

Mary Margaret from Carriage House Samplings:

And ofcourse A Needlework Garden SAL, look a the link on the right. I will put the picture there later on.

And now it's time for my special PIF:

There were 5 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

1. Patti
2. Mylene
3. Jan
4. Terri
5. Loraine

As you can see I have five names now, so.....

I decided to stitch something for all five of you, ladies!
So please email me your address, you can find it in my profile.

Also the latest news on my father:
He went home on Friday the 24th of April!!!! Yes, it's true. He's doing great and we all hope that this will last for a long time. Very strong man!!!!

Till next time...
Lots of hugs and love.
